Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will once again air an entire fight card TONIGHT (March 2, 2013), this time with UFC on FUEL TV 8, which will begin around 7:30 p.m. ET with a Welterweight fight between Marcelo Guimaraes and Hyun Gyu Lim that will air LIVE on Facebook, today's home for the entire mixed martial arts (MMA) event's "Prelims" card.
Why such a late start time for a non pay-per-view (PPV) event? Because UFC on FUEL TV 8 takes place from Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, which is several hours ahead on the world clock.
Following the FUEL TV 8 "Prelims" on Facebook, fans can switch over to the FUEL TV network for the main card, which is headlined by a special 205-pound battle between the legendary Wanderlei Silva and the "All American" Brian Stann.
UFC on FUEL TV 8 begins promptly at 10 p.m. ET this evening.
You can call up your local cable and/or satellite provider or visit them online to find out which channel you should be tuning in to for tonight's MMA extravaganza. You can even check if it's available to watch on your mobile device through the Android Market.
